February has been just as busy as any other month at ProspectSoft.
Like Alice, I was also given the great responsibility of recruiting next year’s placements, more specifically the sales and marketing placements. I went through the same process of creating and sending out an advert for the position. I received a record number of nearly 300 CVs! I filtered these down to 40 telephone interviews and the 12 applicants that stood out the most made it to our assessment day. The day was a success and candidates were happily surprised by the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at ProspectSoft. We were impressed by the high calibre of applicants and filled all four placement positions from one assessment day! I am so glad that I was given this opportunity and enjoyed every minute of it and I am sure that next year’s placements will be brilliant and enjoy working at ProspectSoft just as much as I do!
Elsewhere… We have welcomed a new member to the sales and marketing team! Jade works with us placements 3 days a week and joins us in our most recent marketing and calling campaign which we have all been heavily involved in.
My day to day role in the Client Services team involves liaising with our partners and quoting and following up any leads they may have for add-on sales to existing customers (receiving a purchase order is always a great feeling!) I also help the guys in the technical support side of the team from time to time, taking calls from customers who are having problems with their system and trying to help them as much as possible. These are just a couple of things that are involved in my role but other projects and tasks are continuously popping-up, so I never run out of things to do. I’m definitely enjoying working at ProspectSoft and am looking forward to what the next 6 months has in store!
